Featured Member Interview

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I stumbled across Cut Out And Keep when i was searching the internet for a pattern. I found a project for a Guitar bag on the website and then started to look around and loved the idea of people sharing their ideas and projects so i decided to sign up.

What projects are you currently working on?

I have a few crochet projects on the go at the moment - scarves and gloves as it is freezing here!

What does your craft space look like?

My Craft space is basically a corner of the 'play room'. The rest of the room has my daughter's toys in and i have the corner to keep (most of) my stuff in, although it has overspilled in to the spare bedroom a little now!

Which tool or craft supply do you use the most?

My sewing machine is the tool i use the most. I leave it out on my crafting table so i can go and make something when i have an idea. I received it as a Christmas present a few years ago ad it is brilliant!

What do you craft along to?

When i'm crafting i tend to get a whole concert up on youtube, usually something like Pixies, Blur or Arcade Fire, as it saves me from interruption deciding on what songs to put on!

Favorite Craft

I'd probably say I enjoy sewing the most (on a machine) as it's really easy to make something in such a short space of time. Also there are a lot of free patterns available online so it doesn't have to cost the earth to make something.

Claire's Top Crafts

If you could learn one new craft or make anything, what would it be?

If I could learn a new craft it would be to be able to draw, my drawings look like a child has done them and I'm envious of people who are amazing at drawing!

Who are your crafting heroes?

I really love Twinkie Chan and her work. The reason I learnt how to crochet was so i could make some of her patterns from her book. All of her projects are really cute and like nothing you can buy here in Wales. I always have people asking about items when i wear one of her patterns.
